Reviews

Reviewer: Dan Setzer - - March 18, 2012
Subject: The Dybbuk


“The Dybbuk” by S. Ansky, or S. An-Ski as his name appears here on the Spielberg Yiddish Library, is an undisputed classic of Yiddish literature. It was originally published under the title, “Between Two Worlds”

It can be difficult to locate here on the Archive because it does not appear by name, but rather among the fifteen volumes of An-Ski's collected works. “The Dybbuk” is in volume 2 along with a fragment from another play.

Needless to say, it is required reading for anyone with a serious interest in Yiddish literature. The play has captured the imagination of generations and spawned a myriad of creative works inspired by the original.

The play is full of Jewish folklore collected by Shloyme Rappoport, pen name S. An-Ski, during his travels in Russia between 1911 and 1914.

There are a great number of Hebrew words in the text, which kept me referring to the dictionary. The original pages scanned into the Archive's PDF file were very unclear in several places, making the text in some passages almost unreadable. Neither of the above proved to be an serious impediment to enjoying the play.

This is an essential work and highly recommended.
